Linking Websphere app server administrative roles to AD groups.

I successfully defined AD as the authentication source for my WAS 7.0.

How do I link Admin Roles to AD groups, so that the server will allow things like application deployment only to authenticated members of AD group "deployers" ?

Thank you, but your article is not relevant.
It talks about mapping the WebSphere Business Events authentication by using WebSphere Application Server authentication.

I have already mapped WebSphere Application Server authentication to LDAP, and I don;t use WebSphere Business Events.

I need to map LDAP groups to WebSphere roles.

In the WebSphere Application Server administrative console, click Security > Global security > Administrative Group roles > Add
    In the Search string field, search for the group IDs to which you want to assign the roles, and click Search
    In the Available field, select the LDAP group IDs to which you want to assign the roles and move them to the Mapped to role field, by using the arrows.
    Under Role(s), select deployer role
    Click OK and Save.
